Hi guys

I have started the painting process on my 15mm Blood Angels, as its a huge army, (pictured is about half of what I need to paint) I wanted a quick but effective way to paint them, so I am using contrast paints for the red, over a black undercoat thats been drybrushed white, then highlighted red, this is only the first 3 base colours done, red, black and brown, only the red is highlighted, will go onto paint detail, finish the highlighting then weathering.

I think the paint job looks great. The printing is very clean also.

Wow! Nice work!
I was thinking of putting together a 3rd Edition 40K Blood Angels army.
Yours is an inspiration! Thanks for sharing.

I've scoured through your blog and you have done some awesome work Gunner.

What rules will you use on the table with these?

Also, what's your recipe for that lovely red? (If you don't mind me asking!)

I base coated black, dry brushed white, then applied GW contrast red, then highlighted

Save your money and try thinned paint instead of contrast. The edges may be a bit whiter though. Try drybrushing orange instead of white to combat this. Do a test of course. If you like those darker areas try a further brown wash.

There are loads of contrast like recipes, but just thinning the paint over the black/white drybrushing does wonders.
